Edge-orderings and long increasing paths in graphs

The altitude of a graph G is defined as the largest integer k such that any edge-ordering of G contains an increasing self-avoiding path of length k. In 1971, Chvatal and Komlos asked for the altitude of the complete graph on n vertices. Altitudes of graphs has later been studied in various settings. In this talk, I will give an overview of the topic and discuss some of the ideas involved. In particular I will discuss some recent results in probabilistic versions of the problem, including work by me.
